Everyone is welcome to join the friendly members of the Mexborough & Swinton Astronomical Society at their regular Thursday evening gatherings in their meeting room at the Swinton Bottom Club.
The Society’s weekly programme consists of lectures and talks from a wide range of visiting speakers and members and training where more experienced observers pass on their skills to new ones.
These sessions are a great way to meet local astronomers, get help and advice on equipment and learn about the group’s practical observing sessions and observatory.
Note: these sessions are also accessible remotely via Zoom — please get in touch with the Society for more details.
Please note that this has already taken place on 07/12/2023
